I make software starting with the human stuff... and then dig into the technical bits.
I love solving challenging interaction problems and making sense of information. User experience, collaboration, making tools and design systems are of special interest.
With people and context in mind I use text, a wireframe, high-fidelity mockup, or a prototype in a browser to communicate and bring solutions to life.
I’ve been drawing my whole life and learned early that a picture could more clearly communicate than words.
I’m especially interested in where design, engineering and business meet. I want to help people and projects succeed through process and collaboration.
From design-system driven prototyping to implementing React/Redux single-page JS applications using ES6 and Webpack, I am a practicing front-end engineer.
I’ve helped people turn large and obscure datasets into explorable interfaces to easily ask questions of and interperet meaningful information.
I’ve been working with Rails since v2.3. While I’m not an expert Ruby developer, I am familiar and productive in a Rails project.
I have helped a handful of budding designers and developers. I’ve personally taken the journey from crayons to vim and genuinely love giving back.
Trust, respect, empathy and curiosity are qualities I strive to embody. I will give wholeheartedly to my team like I do my family. Life is short, make friends.
